De-Cluttering Our Home: Part 3

 Welcome to the third installment in my series of De-Cluttering Our Home! You can see Part One here and Part Two here.
Today I am bravely showing how terrible my bathroom cabinet was.  This is under my bathroom sink where I can easily hide my ridiculous stash of beauty and bath supplies. As you can see from the photo, it was out of control!
To tidy this space, I pulled everything out and went through each item individually.  There were products that had expired which I easily tossed.  Other products I knew I would never use and so, if they were sealed or unused, I put those in a different bag.  I ended up throwing out almost half a garbage bag!  The other bag of products included makeup, hair stuff, toiletry bags etc.  I brought this bag to work and laid all the items out on my desk and then invited my colleagues to take what they wanted.  It all went within minutes!  The women were thrilled as though it was a beauty Christmas morning!  It felt great to get rid of the products and to see how happy everyone was.  I also had some sealed skin care more suitable for teens.  My niece took a couple and then I dropped the rest off at our Food Bank.
 Here's how the cabinet looks now:
There is definitely still a lot of product, but it's much more organized and accessible. I was also pleasantly surprised to see how many of my favourites were tucked in there, back-ups ready to go.  In the right hand basket I have a large, clear toiletry bag with samples and extras I know I will use.  On top of that is the bags I use regularly when I am away.  In the left basket I have my hair tools and some extra products I reach for more regularly.  The nail polish remover is accessible as I reach for it weekly.  The five perfumes are my Britney Spears collection, waiting as back-ups.  
I recommend going through your own beauty products.  You may have unopened items you will never use that would be great for gifts!
